Another Renaissance gem. Easy easy check in, check out. Beautiful property and features. Walking distance to many shops and great food. Shuttle service was fast and super friendly. The fact that there was shuttles to/from Reagan National AND shuttles to the Crystal City Metro station was exceedingly convenient! The Renaissance even provided Metro cards so you didnt need to purchase...

I like this hotel and have stayed several times, but I'm weighing in again to help guests set expectations if they think they're likely to see the Capital city from their rooms. At least half the rooms with airport views also look directly into an office building across the street. Rooms on the back side of the hotel also see...

Lobby is gorgeous, comfortable and accommodating with many places to lounge and 4 iMacs to work on. Restaurant was excellent, room was clean and bed was heaven. Quiet and private. Skip room service and eat at the restaurant.

We drove in from Virginia Beach to spend a few days on business as well as celebrate Valentines Day. We arrived to a very efficient and super friendly front desk staff. These 2 guys are what every hotel should strive for in the way of employees. As one checked us in the other came and offered us Hershey Kisses and...

We just stayed here during a conference for Sister Giant. From the moment we stepped into this hotel the staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. The valet staff, the check in staff, the food service managers and staff, the shuttle bus staff . . . the list goes on. The whole staff in the restaurant from the manager...

Why, oh why, are they still building hotels with thin/uninsulated walls? I was startled in the middle of the night by banging coming from my closet....except it was the closet next door. Likewise, conversations were audible. I just don't understand. The other complaint: gone are the days of roomservice with a tray and everything. Now it all comes IN A...

As soon as we received our congressional tickets we began looking for a place to stay. Found this place as it was close to the metro even though they have a shuttle service. Check in was a breeze and our two rooms were delightful. Spacious and very comfortable. The in house bar was really cool but don't be afraid to...

I stayed in here once and I was put a very nice corner king room...decor was beautiful, beds very comfortable and it extremely clean. I'm in love with the corner rooms for the windows and all the natural light that floods in. The lobby is beautiful, modern, clean lines very welcoming. The staff was amazingly welcoming, I am a photographer...

We stayed twice in the same week - while traveling for the holidays. The property is nice, clean and modern. It is located in a business area so restaurants and shops are nearby but not many within walking distance. Our first check in was Christmas Eve so I'll understand that all the employees with seniority probably had the night off...
